There are many causes and types of headaches. They may be of dental origin, especially if they are combined with facial pain, ringing in your ears, clicking or popping of the jaw, sinus pain, dizziness, blurred vision, or pain in your neck, shoulders, back. Migraines and tension headaches may also be caused by dental issues. Many patients suffering with these symptoms are unaware that they grind or clench their teeth. Grinding and clenching are common causes of headaches. The solution typically involves the use of a dental appliance.
There are several variations of this type of appliance. The two we most typically use in our office are the bruxism splint and the NTI appliance. If you suffer in this way, please let us know. We want to help end your discomfort. NTI Tension Suppression System
